NormanMD is a 24/7, on-demand, virtual urgent care telemedicine service powered by Austin Regional Clinic doctors. Hand-selected pediatric and adult medicine physicians have extensive knowledge of local health trends and area specialists. With flexible partnership options and full marketing and customer service support, NormanMD can keep your costs down and save your employees time and money. You can implement the NormanMD telemedicine service for your team even if you don’t have a broker, an insurance plan, or existing employee benefits for your employees.

Even if you are unable to offer full benefits to your employees, you can afford telemedicine.

As a business owner, you may already know how a telemedicine service can help your employees get immediate care. The right telemedicine service matched to your needs offers additional benefits that may not be so obvious.

Top Benefits of Telemedicine

Reduce out-of-office time

Nearly 70% of healthcare visits occur during business hours. In addition, employees who find it difficult to schedule healthcare visits at a time that fits their work schedule may delay the care they need. Telemedicine can make it easy for employees (and their families) to get care sooner. Better access can improve employee health and prevent the spread of contagious illness in the workplace.

Stay competitive and attract top performers

Today, 90% of businesses with 50+ employees offer a telemedicine service. You can’t be part of the 10% that don’t. Employees now see telehealth as a “must-have” versus a “nice-to-have” benefit, according to a national employee benefits and HR consulting firm.

Lower healthcare costs

According to the Society for Human Resource Management, telehealth and telemedicine services can often resolve acute patient issues in one virtual visit, reducing in-person office visits and potentially costly visits to emergency rooms or urgent care facilities. One study calculated that each avoided ER visit can save from $300 to more than $1,500.

What to Look for in a Telemedicine Service

There are additional considerations you should look for, depending on the size of your business and the specific needs of your employees.

  • Local doctors who understand what’s going around can refer you to local specialists and labs they know.
  • Minimal wait time means your employees can get the care they need and get on with their day.
  • Prescription services for temporary refills can provide immediate relief.
  • On-demand pediatric and adult medicine doctors provide care day or night. This may be especially important for employees with families or who work non-regular hours.
  • Coordination with PCPs keeps employees’ primary care providers in the loop with visit summaries.
  • Seamless integration into your benefits plan will not stretch your staff and resources.
  • Broker- and insurance-independent options that fit your needs and budget — even if you don’t have a broker or insurance plan.
